Dave, I have an oped this a.m., a libertarian's take on the Clinton mess.

[ a quote from the end of the oped djf]

Ulysses S. Grant once said, "I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their 
stringent execution." The nation has witnessed the merciless, stringent execution of its sexual harassment laws on 
President Clinton. Should we remove him from office or repeal the odious laws? It should be one or the other. If we let 
him off the hook but keep the laws on the books, then the Greek statesman Solon was right when he said, "Laws are like 
spiders' webs which, if anything small falls into them they ensnare it, but large things break through and escape."
